Friday 20 June
Another busy day, but overall just a small profit to report despite some decent runs.
Blue Sky had four bets today, an each way on Infallible advised last week at 9/2 - drifted out to 11/2 on the day and finished second behind the very impressive Lush Lashes. Two other bets at Royal Ascot ran shocking races with Hebridean and Ebadiyan both finishing last - Paul Jones also very keen on Ebadiyan so a double blow for me there. The final Blue Sky horse ran at Newmarket and I managed a winner with Rose Diamond, backed into evens from the early 9/4.
Optimum advised an each way bet on All The Aces, just failed to collect the each way money as the horse came in 4th beaten a neck for third place. Very frustrating as this followed hot on the heels of SLH's advice on African Skies in the first which also came in fourth, beaten 1/2 length for the place money at 20/1 - can drive you up the wall this game at times.
Mathematicians best of the day was also Ebidayan, but I already had this selection covered.
Weatherbys guide focussed on the Coronation Stakes. shortlisting Spacious and Modern Look, nothing doing here either with both horses unplaced.
As I've been doing all week, I also backed the other marks from Optimum, SLH and Mathematician and this paid dividends with SLH finding Superseus, a 14/1 winner (rule 4) and an each way on Jedburgh at 20/1, finished third beaten less than a length.
Profit on day £159
